EASTER PLANTS One, not so familiar Easter plant is the Easter cactus, which is somewhat similar to the Christmas cactus except the flowers are more regular and the tubes shorter Plants are also more dwarf and produce blooms when quite small, in colors of red, pink or orange-pink with purplish markings When in flower they require sun and lots of water and not too high a temperature After flowering they are treated the same as the Christmas cacuts A great many people will be buying or receiving the beautiful Easter lily at this time These very handsome plants are a welcome sight at this time of the year when the ground in our area is still bare The normal blooming period of this popular plant is July and August, so in order to have them in flower for Easter they are "forced" into bloom Easter does not fall on the same day each year so it is important to know the basic conditions influencing the rate of flower development Seed may be planted, but it does not come true It takes approximately two to three years to produce a sizeable bulb from scales and bulblets It is, therefore, best to purchase a bulb from a florist It is too late to plant these now, of course, but it is something to keep in mind for later on Lily bulbs are planted in October or beginning of Novembeer in a live or six-inch pot, PLANT THEM NOW- ENJOY THEM LATER TREES 'SHRUBS Wi rtcvlvtd our new Spring Meek of EVERGREENS.
